I like that ad.    Not too many Almond Green Minis were used.


Who would have guess The Flintstones influenced a Mini ad?  Based upon the surf theme and the license plate size, this seems to be for Oz built Minis.

Wow. I love that last photo of the packed room with Minis on shelves?  Is that from Japan?   Or the Netherlands?  (seem to be a lot of Dutch plates)

30 minutes in a Mini is more therapeutic than 3 sessions at the shrink.

Reviving an old thread.

How is this for a rich, feature-based print advertisement?   Our new model has "big wheels"!   ;D

Back when the Aussies improved the Moke.

An actual TV commercial right after the Mini's launch.  It's got crazy animation too.   Looking mighty fine in gray color.

It's British, yet they use the word trunk. Huh?

And here is a long Mini TV commercial from Australia.

There's some pretty racy sexual innuendo in this one.

This was such a '60s phenomenon With multiple manufacturers which really died out by the 70s.

That nose conversion reminds me of the old Subaru 360s.

The radius on the wheel wells on the Sprint looks odd?

An ad for a contest to win the 1,000,000th Mini built, some 57 years ago, and the actual car more recently.

I guess the advertising guys thought it was going to be a dark colored car... but when it came down the assembly line it wasn't.

The car in this ad, 731 HOP, is pretty famous. It was a test car in a number of car magazines and it also appeared on TV as the main character's Mini in at least one TV series: "Secret Agent" (aka "Danger Man") with Patrick McGoohan (Who later starred in "The Prisoner" with some Mini Mokes).

I don't remember the turn signals below the bumper, I thought they were in the grill?  8.gif

Interesting marketing angle.  Not sure it would fly today.
